Bentley Turbo RT 1997 (Only 26,000 Miles) For Sale

This 1998 model year example was reputedly the 4th from last RT manufactured of the 252 produced and it has a noticeably enhanced specification which was completed prior to delivery by Rolls Royce Motors approved coachbuilder Mulliner Park Ward for the following bespoke features: Full burr walnut steering wheel, cup holders to the cushion box, upgraded audio system with mission speakers and amps, and a retro-turned aluminium ‘Le Mans’ dashboard and centre console as seen occasionally on Continental R, but believed unique on this model. Built in period Motorola telephones front and back, Mulliner wing vents installed post-production. The RT is most prized within the range delivering an enhanced 400bhp from its 6.75 litre V8 engine. This car looks exceptionally glamorous in Black contrasting full St James Hide upholstery extending to the top roll and roof lining and it would attract admiring glances even amongst a gathering of other Bentleys. The car was distributed by HR Owen, South Kensington to the first owner in neighbouring Chelsea where it was stored securely when not in use. In 2000, the car was purchased via personal introduction to the second owner in the same neighbourhood who has continued storing it at the facility ever since. Being mainly used for out of town touring, the mileage of this RT is just 26,000 since new. There is a substantial history file present which shows that despite small mileage, the fastidious owner returned the car to Jack Barclay and then reputed specialists every three years for a comprehensive assessment and remedy of outstanding issues. This rare car is ‘known’ to us for almost 20 years, and purchased directly from the family. We have had an up to date assessment carried out by marque experts Frank Dale & Stepsons and the vehicle is being mechanically prepared by them. In addition to the service history, we have obtained the construction notes and pre-delivery test reports from the factory, and being one of the final cars produced during the Vickers Rolls Royce chapter this low mileage, uniquely specified Bentley is a future collectors’ item. First time offered on the open market ever.
